About the work

Runner-up - 2019 People's Choice Award - I've been everywhere Man - Karl De Waal.Souvenir spoons are kitsch at their best; signifiers of places we have travelled and experienced. Tyres being the only part of a car that connect with the ground become the conduit to these places. Combined, this artwork takes a new look at nostalgia and the great Australian road trip.
